Phillip Danault (concussion) skated on his own on Friday morning.

The Canadiens forward hasn't played since Jan. 13 after he took a Zdeno Chara slap shot to the head. He's still going through the NHL's concussion protocol, so there's no timetable for his return. He'll continue to be day-to-day. The 24-year-old has seven goals and 23 points in 43 games this season.

The Minnesota Wild have acquired Victor Rask from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Nino Niederreiter.

Rask is in the third season of his six-year, $24 million contract. With no salary retained, the Wild are shedding $1.25 million in annual salary by exchanging Niederreiter for Rask. That said, the Wild are getting the higher risk player here. Rask has just a goal and six points in 26 contests this season. He did have 48 points in 2015-16 and 45 points in 2016-17 though, so perhaps he can bounce back with this fresh start.

The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Nino Niederreiter from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Victor Rask.

Niederreiter is in just the second season of his five-year, $26.25 million contract, so the Hurricanes are making a long-term commitment here. That's not necessarily an issue though as Niederreiter has traditionally been a solid offensive contributor. The 26-year-old has reached the 20-goal milestone on three occasions and he set career-highs in 2016-17 with 25 goals and 57 points in 82 contests. He has nine goals and 23 points in 2018-19, but perhaps the change of scenery will give him a boost. One thing to note is that Niederreiter has never averaged more than 15:33 minutes in a single season and is averaging 14:37 minutes this season, so it'll be interesting to see if he plays a bigger role in Carolina.

Brandon Dubinsky (hamstring) will probably return on Friday, per coach John Tortorella.

Dubinsky has missed the Blue Jackets' last four games. He had apparently been dealing with the injury prior to being sidelined, but after re-aggravating it, it was decided that he would be better off taking time off to let it heal properly. "Now, it feels pretty good," Dubinsky reported.

Alex Stalock is expected to start Thursday night.

Stalock is getting his second consecutive start after guiding Minnesota to a 3-2 shootout win over Los Angeles on Tuesday. Stalock is 6-4-0 with a 2.67 GAA and .901 save percentage in 13 games this season.

Taylor Hall (lower body) will miss Thursday and Saturday's games.

After that, the Devils will be off for the All-Star break and a bye week, so Hall will get plenty of rest. He has 11 goals and 37 points in 33 contests this season.
Jan 17 - 12:47 PM

Collin Delia will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Delia will be going for his first win since Dec. 29. He has a 3-1-3 record with a 2.71 GAA and .932 save percentage in eight contests.

Curtis McElhinney will rest for a couple days due to a knee issue.

Expect McElhinney to miss at least Friday's game as a result. This will lead to a call up, but the Hurricanes haven't made that move yet. McElhinney is 11-6-1 with a 2.50 GAA and .914 save percentage in 18 contests.

Anthony Stolarz (lower body) has been sent to the AHL on a conditioning stint.

Stolarz was previously on the injured reserve list. Carter Hart has assumed the Flyers' starting gig, so it's not clear if Stolarz will have a role with the team after he's back up to speed. Given the way this season has gone for the Flyers, it will largely depend on what goaltenders happen to be healthy at that point.

Markus Granlund scored a goal and collected an assist on Brandon Sutter’s first period goal in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Oilers on Wednesday night.

Granlund was then the first Canucks’ shooter in the shootout, but missed his opportunity. The 25-year old has amassed eight goals and 17 points in 2018-19.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins collected two assists in Wednesday night’s 3-2 shootout win against the Canucks.

He collected his first assist on Khaira’s shorthanded goal and his second on McDavid’s powerplay goal, providing extra value for fantasy owners. His 2018-19 production is now up to 15 goals and 44 points.
Jan 17 - 1:55 AM

Michael Del Zotto was traded to the Ducks in return for Luke Schenn and a 2020 seventh round pick on Wednesday night.

The trade between the Canucks and Ducks occurred late Wednesday night. Del Zotto had been a healthy scratch for the last four games for the Canucks and only dressed once since December 6th, 2018. Perhaps Del Zotto may see more playing time in southern California, but even if he does, this trade should carry almost no fantasy impact.
